Property Description

Have you ever dreamed of owning a grand historic home across from Forest Park! Now you can! This exquisite home is an architectural marvel. The elaborate main staircase has a stunning stained glass window and traditional open bannisters. Entire house is hardwood, except for the tiled kitchen and baths. Visitors can hang coats and more in the custom closet under the front staircase. 2 sets of pocket doors enclose the front parlor. The back parlor boasts the original fireplace. A smaller staircase in the back of the house off the kitchen and side entry. All wood in the house is stained, nothing is painted.The plaster walls and ceilings are in perfect condition. The second floor porch and front porch have a stunning view of a church. Front porch swing included! There are too many closets to count! The basement is dry and the ceiling is high! Huge workshop in the yard with electric heat would make an awesome "she shed". Upstairs bathroom was renovated just 1 year ago. Fall in love!
